Yoga is Good for the Brain

Adding yoga into your weekly exercise routine can help ward off mental decline.  Although your mental status can decline as we age, we can help slow the process in the way we move and workout.

In a recent study, individuals who meditated daily and did yoga for an hour each week for 12 weeks did significantly better on memory tests and improvements in mood, depth perception and communication.

The reduction in stress hormones and anxiety from the yoga could have been the reason for this change.

Below is a link to how to meditate and use yoga for 12 minutes daily in order to help boost your brain power!
